Raccoon tattoos

Raccoon tattoo symbol ideas Raccoon Tattoo Designs - The raccoon and his black mask and white and black striped tail conjure up various characters - bandit, carnival reveller, or actor of old. The raccoon is all these things, a mischievous master of disguise. This nocturnal scavenger also symbolizes our hidden identities, our dark side, that which we don't know about ourselves. Perhaps the perfect symbol of our 'alter egos'.

'Raccoon' comes from the North American first nations Algonqian language - aroughcoune - meaning 'he who scratches with his hands'. Spell it with one 'r' or a 'double rr', it passes equally well in the English language. The raccoon is found the length and breadth of North America, from the far north all the way to Mexico. Like another infamous 'trickster', the coyote, the raccoon has adapted well to living amongst humans as the suburbs infringe upon their natural habitat.

Raccoons forage about in family units, on the prowl for fruits, vegetables, and any small animal that crosses their path. Prior to eating, they go through the motions of washing their food in water. This may be for hygienic purposes, or may just be some hard-wired habit from their evolutionary past when they lived on fish. In any event, their hands are a powerful raccoon feature, and may represent the act of giving, receiving, or holding.

Trees are a favourite haunt of raccoons, and a favored way to escape larger predators, although they move about entirely on terra firma. Curious to a fault, raccoons are famous for trespassing into the human world where they back-track without a squabble if they have an escape route. But, trapped, the raccoon can react ferociously - and it has the claws and canine teeth to make good on its determination to survive.

The little masked bandit is a scavenger extraordinaire (the ultimate omnivore), able to negotiate garbage can lids with ease, and even house doors. Their curiosity is supported by a dexterity that leaves no stone unturned. They are slow to back off their booty, showing no regret and little fear, so it's best to exercise patience when shooing them away.

As a symbol of curiosity, dexterity and mischievousness, a raccoon tattoo would be a statement about one's enthusiasm for adventure, exploration, and trickery. They are similar to the Trickster in Native American folklore, due to their ability to mislead. Hunters have been confounded by their habit of doubling back on their own trail and hiding in hollow trees.

The raccoon may be endearing because of its mask, because, as humans, we need to occasionally change identity. There's no question but that the human psyche has many faces, without which we couldn't navigate a 24-hour day. Raccoon wisdom, then, also includes shape-shifting and secrecy. If the raccoon is your spirit guide, you would probably shine on the theatrical stage.

Raccoons entered human culture for their water repellent coats which made excellent cold-weather protec...
